Standings on MaxPreps

League Standings

MaxPreps league standings are powered by each teams schedule. Each game marked as a league contest on the schedule will be included on the MaxPreps league standings page.

The league standings page will contain different language depending what sport standings page you are looking at.
For example, Baseball league standings page will include categories like Win Percentage, Runs for, Runs against, and Win/Loss records, whereas a Football league standings page will include categories like Win Percentage, Points for, Points against, and Win/Loss records.

Please note: MaxPreps Standings are not the official league standings as some leagues have a different determination of the league champion.
